AWS Command Line Interface Reference

Amazon Web Services (AWS) now offers the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), a single tool for controlling and managing multiple AWS services. AWS CLI is the recommended CLI tool for AWS CloudFormation.

For more information about using the AWS CLI commands, see Using the AWS CLI. For reference information about the AWS CloudFormation commands, see cloudformation in the AWS Command Line Interface Reference.


The prior AWS CloudFormation CLI tools are still available, but not recommended. If you need information about the prior AWS CloudFormation CLI tools, see the AWS CloudFormation CLI Reference in the documentation archive.
